Electrifying Predator Poster Teases the Hunter's Return

11 October 2017 9:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After sitting on the shelf for nearly a decade, Fox is getting ready to revive a classic franchise with The Predator. Director Shane Black, who starred in the original movie, has been hard at work on the reboot for a long time and fans have been waiting eagerly for a first look at the new take on the classic sci-fi series. Now, courtesy of the Brand Licensing Expo in London, we have a new poster for The Predator and it leans heavily into the recently confirmed suburban setting for the movie. Also, there's a lot of lightning.

The poster was shared to Instagram from the Brand Licensing Expo by Dirtees. The Predator poster has yet to be officially released by Fox, but we get a great look at it here. The image features a shot overlooking a suburban neighborhood from high above, with a bunch of lightning forming the distinct shape of the titular alien. »

The Predator gets a poster from the London Brand Licensing Expo

11 October 2017 2:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The famous Predator has made an appearance at the London Brand Licensing Expo with a cool new poster for the upcoming reboot/sequel The Predator.

The film, directed by Iron Man 3‘s Shane Black (who also starred in the original Predator alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger as marine Hawkins), is set between Predator 2 and 2010’s Predators. Rather than being set in the jungle once again, The Predator is instead taking place in a suburban area and centered around a young son and his father.

Check out the poster seen at the Expo below…

 

The Predator is currently set for a February 9th, 2018 release and features a cast that includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Augusto Aguilera (The Fifth Man), Jacob Tremblay (RoomSterling K. Brown (This is Us, The People v. O.J. Simpson), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones »

Movie taglines: an underappreciated art form

28 September 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Guy Buckland Oct 4, 2017

We salute the highs, lows and plain hilarious in the world of the movie tagline...

Hanging proudly on the wall of a room in my house where I escape to watch films and play videogames (a room that you can call anything you like, but – for the love of all that is decent – must not be referred to as a ‘man cave’) is a framed poster for a movie I have never seen. A movie that I shall probably never see.

It takes pride of place nestled between The Shining, which is the wife’s joint favourite film ever (tied with Overboard), and Batman ’89. Why? Because it has arguably the single greatest tagline ever plastered over a film advertisement:

"Unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the president of the United States."

It just makes me smile every time I enter the room. As Den of Geek »

Of all the franchise reboots due to be churned out by Hollywood in the coming years, one of the most highly anticipated is The Predator, from 20th Century Fox. Directed by Shane Black (who starred in the original Predator in 1987), from a script he co-write with Fred Dekker, it’s intended to reignite the iconic film series and draw an entirely new generation of fans to its high concept premise. Updates on the production have been few and far between, though – which is why it’s noteworthy that a recent conversation between Stacey Snider and Variety provides a new perspective on the movie.

Stacey Snider gave the interview to mark her first anniversary as Chairperson and CEO of 20th Century Fox, and in a wide-ranging discussion, the studio head took time to detail her »

The Predator Is Officially Heading to Suburbia

20 September 2017 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been a while since we've seen a Predator movie, but that is going to change next year. Fox has been working on a reboot for quite some time and the movie has completed filming. Good or bad, The Predator is coming for us on August 3, 2018. Plot details have been a little sketchy, but we have heard previously that the long-awaited new Predator movie is going to feature a suburban setting. Now, Fox CEO Stacey Snider has confirmed that this is indeed going to be the case. Welcome to the suburbia, Predator franchise.

Stacey Snider recently spoke at length with Variety on a range of topics relating to Fox and the future of the studio. At one point, while discussing the possibility of franchise fatigue, she decided to talk a bit about The Predator, which is being directed by Shane Black. In addition to confirming the suburban setting, she »

Jake Busey is playing the son of Gary Busey’s Predator 2 character in The Predator

2 July 2017 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Arnold Schwarzenegger rejected the opportunity to reprise his role as Dutch from Predator for Shane Black’s upcoming sequel, it seems The Predator will have at least one connection to earlier movies, as Jake Busey has revealed that he is playing the son of Gary Busey’s Predator 2 character, special agent Peter Keyes.

““[Shane Black] called me and he said ‘Hey, you wanna do this movie? We don’t have money for you but it’ll be a fun thing to come play and be your father’s son,’” Busey told The Red Booth. “And so as much as I have followed in my Dad’s footsteps career-wise, this is like really following in his footsteps by playing a character who is the son of the character he played. And I don’t think there would be any other forum where I would do that. I think this is the one thing. »

Newswire: Jake Busey is his father’s son, even in The Predator

27 June 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s common knowledge now that Shane Black’s The Predator will be something of a sequel rather than a complete overhaul of the franchise, and now we’ve got more details of how it will advance the previously established lore. Turns out, it involves a Busey family legacy. Jake Busey—son of Gary—recently told The Red Booth Show that he’s playing the son of his father’s character in Predator 2, Special Agent Peter Keyes. (Keyes met his demise in that movie.)

Busey the younger, of the From Dusk To Dawn series, relayed his conversation with Black. “He called me and he said ‘Hey, you wanna do this movie? We don’t have money for you but it’ll be a fun thing to come play and be your father’s son,’” he said. He also noted that he thinks the new movie would qualify as Predator »

How The Predator Reboot Connects Directly to Predator 2

26 June 2017 6:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since writer-director Shane Black boarded 20th Century Fox's new film The Predator, the filmmaker has stated that it is not a reboot or a remake, and today we have even more proof that is the case. One of The Predator stars, Jake Busey, revealed in a new interview that his character actually has a connection to the original Predator movies, confirming that it continues the timeline set up in 1987's The Predator and 1990's The Predator 2. This connection is also with his own family, since he plays the son of Peter Keyes, the character his father, Gary Busey, played in Predator 2.

The actor made this revelation during an interview with The Red Booth, where he stated that writer-director Shane Black had told him right away that he'd be playing the son of his father's character from Predator 2. In that sequel, Peter Keyes was DEA Special Agent Peter Keyes, »

Predator 30th Anniversary Poster Shared by Director Shane Black

16 June 2017 3:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Predator turned 30 recently and, even three decades later, it remains a true action classic. The movie holds up incredibly well, even by today's standards, and the creature is still a relevant part of pop culture. Shane Black is currently shooting The Predator, a sequel to the original, which is set to come out next year. Before he was a successful writer/director, Shane Black was an actor and, he actually starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original Predator. That being the case, Black recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of the movie.

Shane Black took a break from reviving the Predator franchise and took to social media in order to honor the 30th anniversary of Predator. On his Twitter, he shared a pretty sweet looking poster, with Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch front-and-Center, celebrating the entirety of the franchise. Shane Black, who played Hawkins, did have a very simple but effective message »

Ranked: The Alien and Predator Films

25 May 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Alien: Covenant is the latest addition to the Alien franchise, but how does it stand up against the previous films? To find out, we rank em’ all (including the Predator films).

The Alien franchise has a long and winding history. From lengthy gestation periods between sequels, to lots of conflict between filmmakers and studios, to varying audience interest over the years - I’m amazed that they just haven’t given up yet. Despite all these challenges, the series has persevered for nearly 40 years and gained legions of fans. As of late, the Alien franchise is back in theaters with a prequel storyline being helmed by series originator, Ridley Scott. Predator will also soon be back in theaters with a new film in 2018.

So maybe the Alien and Predator franchises are only linked by a small easter egg in Predator 2, but two fanservice films in the 2000’s made it official. »

The Predator Poster Changes Classic Quote, Is This a Bad Sign?

23 May 2017 4:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new teaser poster for Shane Black's The Predator reboot has been revealed and it puts a new twist on a classic quote from the original John McTiernan movie from 1987. While we've seen one picture of a Predator from the set in Vancouver, that's about all we know aside from the cast. Even the photo doesn't shed much light about what could be happening in the movie unless Predator hunters have teamed up with humans to fight something worse than humans and Predator hunters. Or maybe they're just joyriding in a tank. An official teaser poster has been spotted at the Licensing Expo currently being held in Las Vegas.

The new teaser poster comes to us courtesy of Collider and it contains a twist on a familiar quote from the original movie. The line, "You are one beautiful mother &@%!$" is credited to Olivia Munn's character Casey from the upcoming The Predator. »

Director Ridley Scott and Katherine Waterston (Daniels) on the set of Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant opened in theaters this past weekend and brought in an estimated $36 million at the box office.

Fox’s film enjoyed a solid global debut performance as the Ridley Scott directed film that is the second of the prequel series and the sixth Alien feature film in the franchise earned $66.3 million globally.

In space, no one can hear you scream. After nearly four decades, those words remain synonymous with the sheer, relentless intensity of Ridley Scott’s masterpiece of futuristic horror, Alien. Now, the father of the iconic franchise returns once more to the world he created to explore its darkest corners with Alien: Covenant, a pulse-pounding new adventure that pushes the boundaries of R-rated terror.

Why Ridley Scott Needs to Stop Making Alien Movies

22 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Upon first glance at the title it might seem like some "click-bait" article trying to get read. And perhaps, no matter what you read here, that is how you're going to see it. However, once you finish reading this opinion piece (and remember, this is simply my opinion), you may very well agree that Ridley Scott is no longer the man to handle the Alien franchise. Especially after watching this weekend's less than stellar Alien: Covenant.

When the first Alien movie landed in theaters in 1979, it was groundbreaking. It featured incredible special effects, a plausible look at the space program in the future, and a scene of such amazingly grotesque proportions (the alien exploding out of a crew mate's stomach), it still shocks people to this day. The film was smart, it featured a female kicking ass, and in many ways, the first Alien movie directed by Ridley Scott is still ahead of it's time. »

Ranking the Xenomorph: The ‘Alien’ films from worst to best

11 May 2017 12:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In 1979 the world of cinema was forever changed as Alien arrived in theatres across the world. Based on a script from Dan O’Bannon, director Ridley Scott scared an entire generation senseless with his chilling space-set sci-fi horror. The film followed a group of space miners whom, after investigating a distress beacon on an uncharted planet, found themselves in distress as they came under attack from the deadliest of foes, the Xenomorph. The creature came from the inventive brain of the late H. R. Giger and has haunted viewers ever since it first sprung forth from John Hurt’s chest cavity.

Since Alien burst onto the screen we’ve had three sequels, two spin-offs and, with this week’s release, Alien: Covenant, two prequels. That’s a lot of films for one creature to inhabit and the results have varied. There’s been a lot of debate over the years about which film is best, »
